    This is why autocorrect is not a good idea.

    Try typing `peoper`, i.e. an easy typo for `pepper`, in something with a spellcheck. It`ll usually suggest `people`. If you have autocorrect on, it will change it to `people`. Along with who knows what other changes.

    They didn`t pull the book off the shelves, as far as I know. Why should they? It`s just a minor and unimportant eroor.

    We`re mortified that this has become an issue of any kind, and why anyone would be offended, we don`t know

    I don`t know either. Personally, I wouldn`t bother to correct such a tiny mistake.

    Very interesting data there for anyone who ever feels that we, as consumers, are constantly ripped off:

    Penguin Group Australia had to reprint 7,000 copies of Pasta Bible last week... the reprint cost A$20,000..."

    That book retails for A$20, so 7,000 copies which sell for $140,000 are printed for $20,000... a 700% markup between leaving the printer`s door and you picking it up in the shop.

    >>duffy, that is way too expensive of a publicity stunt.

    READ the article - "...stock in bookshops will not be recalled as it is "extremely hard" to do so, Penguin said." "If anyone complains about the "silly mistake", they will be given the new version, Penguin said."

    So they are NOT destroying the books, they are NOT eating the loss, they are getting free publicity and probably selling out the whole run. IT`S A GODDAMN PUBLICITY STUNT.

    damn, ok, look at your keyboarrd, look for the letters O, P, L, and E, now, look at P, E, and R. ok, first letter, O, and P, right beside eachother, easy to mistake, P, and E, far apart, retards, L, and R, also far, thats also retarded, and an extra letter, E, i doubt the makers wernt racist and it actually was a mistake.

    > look at your keyboard etc i doubt the makers wernt racist and it actually was a mistake

    Shadow, having typed millions upon millions of characters in 20 years in the commercial printing industry, I can tell you its not a `wrong key` error, it`s a `wrong neuron` error. When you type a lot, your brain gets as conditioned as your fingers to typing certain things, such as the word `the` for example. I type at around 120 words per minute; I actually look at the keyboard about once a minute. 99.9% of what I type I never take my eyes off the original copy. And yet there are certain mistakes that I *WILL* make every single time, and automatically correct. For example, EVERY time I type Dylan, as in Bob Dylan, I type it as `Dyland` and have to press delete at the end of it. My brain is trained by endless repetition that you type `Dylan` by pressing D Y L A N D DEL - and there`s nothing I can do to stop it (and yes, it happened 3 times there).

    I know I`m not explaining it very well. Consider your favorite music albums - you listen to it over and over and over. Every time Song A ends, Song B begins. You get used to that. Then, when they put that track on a different CD release, with a different song following it, your brain still keeps expecting the old Song B to start every time Song A ends, because that`s what you`ve got used to.

    That`s what I`m trying to explain. It happens when typing too, especially when you type at professional speeds. What happened here, was that the word `people` comes up 500 times more often in normal text than the word `pepper`, and so whomever typed this, automatically typed the more common word.

    That`s another possible explanation. There are many examples, such as typing `that` instead of `than`. That`s very common.

    We look at partial words and fill in what`s most likely to complete a word, so L A N becomes L A N D. It`s not too dissimilar to an auto-complete function in a text editor.

    I doubt you`ve thought this through, which makes it all the funnier when you call other people retards for coming up with plausible explanations rather than your idiotic drivel. Feel free to try to come up with an explanation of how the racism you have manufactured from thin air would benefit the publisher.

    Look at your keyboard. Is the `o` next to the `p`? Maybe it isn`t on your keyboard, but it is on a standard English keyboard.

    Now type `peoper` into something with spellchecking.

    Is it possible to mistakenly press a key next to the intended key when typing quickly?

    Oh dear shadowtube, If it had said freshly chopped Nbombs killed with extreme predjudice by members of the arian brotherhood; you may have a point. It was a misprint. Enjoy it for the little smile it raises. Stop looking for racism everywhere, thats why it keeps hanging round.
